Competency 039:Earth and Space Science
The teacher understands cycles in Earth systems.
The formation of rock follows a cyclical process
Igneous rocks are crystalline solids that form directly from cooling magma or lava
Sedimentary rocks are called seocndary rocks because they are often the result of the accumulation of small pieces broken off from preexisting rocks and then pressed into a new form .
Types of Sedimentary Rocks
Clastic- made when pieces of roc, material and organic material fuse together

are also secondary rocks formed from igneous, sedimentary, or other types of metamorphic rock.
Most common metamorphic rocks
Granite is the most common type of
Igneous rock and is created from magma
Chemical- formed when water rich minerals evaporates, leaving the minerals behind.
Organic- made from the remains of plants and animals
Minerals are the most common form of solid material found in the Earth's crust
To be considered a mineral, a substance must be found in nature and must never have been a part of any living organism

Four distinct stages:
Tides is a word used to describe the alternating rise and fall in sea level with respect to the land, produced by the gravitational attraction of the moon and the sun.
Carbon and Nitrogen Cycle
Carbon cycle is the capture of carbon from carbon dioxide in the atmosphere by plants to make glucose.
Nitrogen is important to all living things because it is a major component of DNA, RNA, and amino acids, which are the building blocks of protiens
